    Skip the Line! Walk to the Peak

    So you've seen the queue for the Peak Tram and decided to take a walk instead. Before we start out, I want to take one last moment to ensure you know what you're getting into. Like the tram, this path will take you up 368 meters in elevation. After accounting for some windy streets and switchbacks, you'll walk 2.4 kilometers on your way. That's an average grade above 15%.
    It's not an easy walk, but it's not impossible either. Still, if you're having second thoughts, you can always head a bit down the hill to Queensway. From there, you can find a taxi or the number 15 bus to take you up the hill.

    Still with me? Great. Let's get you started in the right direction.

    You should be standing near the entrance to the Peak Tram's lower terminus building.

    It's in between two major roads. Traffic flows downhill on Garden Road, at ground level. On the other side, traffic flows uphill on an elevated roadway named Cotton Tree Drive.

    We'll start by walking underneath the elevated roadway.

    You'll see some stairs to Hong Kong Park straight ahead, but don't go that way.

    Instead, turn right-- up the hill-- and follow Tramway Path as it follows almost underneath Cotton Tree Drive. I'll check-in again when you're on the far side of the parking lot.
